Inspire your creativity

faGuitarAlign is carefully optimized for every kind of recording involving one sound source and multiple microphones and / or DI tracks. We have a lot of people using it creatively for recordings with fiddle, cello, double bass, piano or even choir tracks. It’s creative design will inspire you to go beyond the known possibilities of any other alignment tool.

Practical usage

The plugin is designed to be used on a stereo bus with the source tracks routed and panned correctly to it or optionally routed through the side-chain input. It’ll then phase align and blend both together and output it either in mono (standard) or with a stereo width of your choice.

You can even enhance the original stereo width up to 200% to get a wider image of the instrument.

Routing

The Plug-in is designed to be used as a stereo Plug-in on a stereo bus (Aux) only. The two mono input tracks can be routed to this stereo bus and should be panned hard left (Input 1) and hard right (Input 2). Alternatively it’s also possible to route one input through the Plug-ins Sidechain.

The Plug-in itself is only suitable for blending two inputs. It’s also possible to cascade this sort of routing you’ ve seen above to blend several tracks together. In order to do that you would add a new stereo bus, insert another instance of faGuitarAlign and assign the output of the first faGuitarAlign left panned to the new bus and assign the third input right panned to it. With this cascading principle its possible to use an almost infinite number of input tracks and Plug-in instances.

faTimeAlign is a professional Time / Phase Alignment Plug-in with an unrivaled accurate sub-sample precision and an unique intuitive user interface.

Features:

  • Ultra precise sub-sample accurate time alignment up to 0.001 samples
  • Group Mode for delaying multiple tracks at once
  • Negative time delays for adjusting tracks relative to each other
  • Intuitive delay knob with adjustable delay span (min/max or range based)
  • Scalable GUI suitable for small tablets up to 4k monitors
  • Time delays between -44.000 and +44.000 samples (+/- 1 second @ 44 kHz)
  • Phase invert
  • Compensation of time delays between microphones to fix comb filter distortion
  • Upsampling between 1x and 32x
  • A/B comparisons
  • 4 different input units (ms, foot, meter & samples) for all possible needs
  • Unique intuitive user interface
  • Supports Samplerates between 44.100 – 192.000 Hz
  • Full Unicode support for Western languages, Japanese, Chinese, Korean etc.

Get your Phase problems fixed in seconds

faTimeAlign is a reliable workhorse proven to work with any kind of multi microphone source material. Time Alignment is a delicate and often time consuming task, so you want nothing less than the best possible solution: Easily adjust your tracks, relatively to the other tracks, with positive or negative delays and make A/B comparisons to absolutely nail the correct setting.

But that’s not enough! You can also arrange your tracks into different sub-groups and delay them relative to each other to align different instruments or instrument groups.

Easy to use and flexible

One of the main reasons you will love faTimeAlign is its unique user interface. The range of the delay knob can be set to any value narrow or wide, which lets you easily sweep through different delay spans. Furthermore, the feature to enter values in foot, samples, meter or milliseconds gives you every possible flexibility you’ll need.

Prepared for every task

And if you want to be creative you can also use this Plug-in for other tasks like applying stereo effects such as a moving Haas delay, creating colorful filter textures with a moving comb filter (similar to a slow phaser effect) or applying artificial double tracking to your vocals with varying delays. And if that’s not enough you can use it if you do some parallel compression with analog outboard gear where you have to deal with sub-sample delays because of different Samplerates.
